Just a great day with family and friends

Recommended Posts

I dont often post stuff like this this but it was such a fun day, I thought why not? It was my grandsons fourth birthday today and Nita and I threw him a backyard swimming party. Due to lifes circumstances, Nita and I are raising this little guy. It's a lot of time and work but we both love it. He's been with us for just over two years now.

 

Referring to the grilling thread, here's my backyard grilling shrine. I spend countless hours under this little tent.

We picked up this 18'x 42" deep pool on the local Kijiji site for a song last fall. The weather has finally warmed up enough to use it. It was 29C here today.

Nita recently became reunited with an old childhood friend who dropped by today. That's Linda on the left and Nita on the right.

And this is Tristan. Lord help us try to keep him out of this pool. He loves it in there. He's a bit young yet but maybe next year I'll be posting a pic of him with a 22 or 24 inch Brook Trout.

I hope you all had a great weekend too.

Well done.

I took my 2 year old son for his first boat ride today. It was awesome. You have a great spread there, you must be extremely happy that you can share it with such quality people.

 

Watching my son sit on my fathers lap today in my boat was a moment I will never forget. I am sure you feel the same way about many of that little fella's achievements.

Nice spread and a wonderful day, Dan looks like some serious grilling going on with the chair in front of the BBQ.

    • Joke of the day.

      Another forum I'm on has this. Up to 300 pages. I don't get them all, some are lame, some cute and many hilarious. A great way to start a day with a good yoke. Do you have one? One of my faves. A guy goes out with the boys and gets hammered, he pisses his pants, again. He tells the guys, "My wife is going to kill me, I pissed myself, again!." His buddy says " No problem Pal. Put a 20 buck bill in your shirt pocket and tell your wife that some drunk pissed on you and gave you a 20 to co

    • Great Week on Nip/Upper French

      Another great week at Sandy Haven Camp on Nip/Upper French.  Been going there for over 35 years and its about as good as it's ever been.   Three generations of Dietz boys hit the Nipissing grand slam.  Boated two muskies, had hooks in two more and numerous follows.   The walleye bite was hot with 40-50 fish days and limits of keepers.   Bass fishing, smallies and largemouth, was real good too.   That place is on fire!

    • Family, Fishing & RV Camping

      Howdy!  It just worked out that I have some time off mid - late august. I know it's last minute but I'm hoping to get out for 4 - 5 days with the family for some relaxation and maybe to do a little fishing. Being that it's so late, most of the (well known) provincial parks are full.  Hoping to find somewhere quiet to bring the trailer(within 3-4 hours of Toronto, maybe a bit more if it's worth it) do a little fishing with the kids. Any suggestions? I have a small zodiac, being abl

    • A family and friends fishing report

      For the last 5 years in the summer my wife and I rent a cottage somewhere within a 2ish hour drive from Ottawa for a week of fishing and relaxing. March of last year our little guy was born and the trip has turned into more of a family vacation than a fishing trip as expected. Last year we found a cottage we really enjoyed with great fishing and decided to book it again for our 2019 trip. This year my good friend and his wife joined us on the trip which is always a lot of fun. The little guy is

    • Added to the smoking family

      As you all know,I am hooked on this smoking hobby now.  I am very pleased with the old one I got from Jessy a couple of years ago. It was my trial and error unit, and is still does it,s job, but the burner is getting weak. For the price of the burner,I got a brand new unit.              3 weeks ago I seen a brand new front loader at the local hock shop. This location I frequent regularly. I was actually their first customer back 24 years ago. Sold them a gas ice auger.  So like I said,3 we
